The mission of the faculty of the Robotics II class is to give students the basic principles, design, analysis, and synthesis of robotic systems.
The objectives of the Robotics II class are to help students learn:
- Coordinate frames, rotations, transformations, link coordinates, direct kinematics and inverse kinematics,
- Signals and Systems, Filtering,
- Source localization,
- Wireless communication,
- State equations of a robot, classical and intelligent control algorithms,
- Range sensing, Proximity sensing, touch sensors, force and torque sensing,
- Satisfactory peer mentoring activities at college and high school levels.
